Day 6 of 100 blogs in 100 days challenge

Today's musings

What are the pros and cons of doing 100 blog posts in 100 days?:

Pros

  • It might boost my Google rankings
  • It may help people get to know me, they may like me, and be more inclined to do business with me
  • It's forcing me to come up with ideas
  • It's forcing me to practice my writing skills
  • I might be able to create a talk out of it
  • I might learn some unexpected stuff
  • I am becoming more aware of how readable/unreadable blogs are
  • Even if they are short posts I can come back and add to them, and they will increase in value as an asset on the website

Cons

  • It may be a waste of time, nothing may come of it
  • It's time consuming
  • It may help people get to know me, they may dislike me, and be less inclined to do business with me
  • Trying to publish something every day, it could get sloppy, and give a bad impression
  • Writing feels rushed
  • Adds to stress when I already have too much to do

Well it's still early days yet. This is day 6.

But at the moment I am feeling the pressure. What on earth I'm I going to write about next?

And what have I been doing today?

  • 3 hours 6 minutes building and validating forms
  • 2 hours 8 minutes working on Google Adwords
  • 1 hour 54 minutes working on my networking group
  • 1 hour 53 minutes journal entries, doing graphics, restructuring content
  • 1 hour 29 minutes on twitter and networking forums
  • 38 minutes doing business admin

Today's total: 11 hours 11 minutes

I spent more time than I planned on my own website because I realised that the heading tags h1, h2, h3 could be better structured. Google likes well structured and hierarchical headings. That took an hour that I hadn't banked on.

I think I need to spend less time on twitter and the networking forums. Tomorrow I should limit myself to 15 minutes on twitter before lunch and 15 in the afternoon.

Tomorrow I want to try and finish the dynamic forms I am building for a client. Then if I do that I have an idea for the journal involving some colourful graphics.
